I've stayed at 3 Colleges about 6x over the past 15 years. I was delighted to find it newly refurbished on my last visit in July, 2014--and now with A-C! My two little boys and I shared a triple room (3 twin beds) in the attic. We could walk to EVERYTHING--and especially loved sailing boats in the Jardin de Luxembourg,... More

So the advantages of this hotel are its excellent location (just a few blocks from the Luxembourg RER station from CDG airport, walking distance to so many places) and the fact that it has in-room AC units, crucial for the summer. The reception staff also speak enough English to help non-French speakers, and they are very nice. But we booked... More

Like most hotels on a smallish budget in Paris during July, the room was tiny and pretty expensive, but it was clean, had air conditioning, the bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly: it did the trick. Add to that the location right next to the Sorbonne and the Latin Quarter with plenty of bars, restaurants and creperies around,... More

stayed at this hotel with other family in a separate room. The rooms are tiny and ours smelt terrible however, the prices were affordable for Paris so we put up with it. I would not be writing this review if it were not for being accused of splashing liquid on the wall paper and receiving a letter by email after... More

Madam, The "terrible smell" you complain about was the smell of a brand new carpet! You were the first to stay in that newly refurbished room. As you know, little red spots appeared during your stay just above the desk. It really looked like red wine stains, but it appeared it was patches coming from the plastering behind the new... More

The location of this hotel is very convenient - you can take the RER direct from the airport and you are right in the heart of the city, within walking distance of many sights. The room and bathroom were very small, even for Paris standards. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

Nice hotel, recently redone.... ( our room was being finished as we arrived). Very pleasant. Helpful staff. No mandatory breakfast. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Clean. Close to transport. Easy to get to from CDG.

Excellent location. From Gare du Nord to Luxembourg in about 10 minutes with the rerB and then a two minute walk to the hotel. The hotel it self features very small rooms and a nice bathroom. We asked for a bath, and we got a bath, maybe because I asked it while booking it with Booking.com in highschool French. The... More

stayed there a week in 2008. Price ok, quiet, side street hides Boul-Mich traffic. There are cheaper places, but you should definitely consider comparing prices with this. The walls are typically paris-2 star-thin, and smalllll rooms.
